UI / UX

15 ways you might improve the experience for your users:

  • Try not to create a learning curve for users, keep it as expected. For example for photos people tends to pinch-zoom it, please don't change it.

  • Try exploring new forms that have proved to be a good one. Example cards... From tinder to inshorts ... Many apps have leveraged this form.

  • Try to keep your most valuable page/content maximum 2-3 taps away.

  • 4. Keep user inputs legible: Ex: check the scrolls are proper when the focus is changed. Check that your sticky divs are not taking up half of the space in mobile and another half by on-screen keyboard, etc.

  • Web accessibility: guys guys guys! it's 2019 it should be the first priority, especially for the web.

  • D Dark mode: web or mobile, everyone loves dark mode these days and not just the nerdy ones.

  • Try to resist yourself by putting as few buttons as possible, per screen (for the mob) since having too many of them annoys and confuses users.

  • Don't change the user navigation flow when you have large number of active users suddenly. Some apps are for occasional use, next time when the user comes in, user is lost.

  • Avoid having multiple scrolls in the same direction, until unless you have multiple tables and nested tables maybe.

  • Know your audience. Every design has a purpose and that is to reach the intended audience effectively.

  • Be a Good and Bad User. A designer needs to think like a user. Think from a user's point of view about what you need and where you need it. Secondly think like a bad user who has a very less attention span, how the user will get irritated by bad UX.

  • Users are more likely to notice items near the top of the page, in order of their importance, to prioritize content location according to business while keeping aesthetics.

  • Design for color-blind users: greyscale mode could help.

  • Don't use double-taps on mobile devices. There is a huge difference between desktop and mobile interaction, so keep that in mind.

  • Design, don't Decorate: If it's not usable then it creates a bigger issue than what cosmetics/beauty facilitates the user.

Still here ? here's 2 more as bonus

  • Menu dropdowns are better vertical, not horizontal hover; it is much harder to scroll horizontally, especially in mobile mode.

  • Blue text is understood to be hyperlinked, don't add blue text to non hyperlinked text just to highlight it.
